Back in April, Trump said "...100,000 Americans Die From Coronavirus We've Done A Good Job"

By that one's own standard it has not been a "good job".

QuoteThis page is mostly about hydroxychloroquine. I am not a doctor and I am not giving out medical advice. You could be allergic to hydroxychloroquine or have some other strange reaction to it, so if you think you might need hydroxychloroquine, ask your doctor about it. Only take medicine that your doctor prescribes. Do not drink fish tank cleaner. Do not lick a hydroelectric power plant because it starts with 'hydro.' Use your brain. Always consult a physician.

100 thousand people dying is like my home town, the town I work in, and the surrounding two or three towns dying in mass.

But Italy had a death rate of 10%, going by memory, so I was expecting something more like 30 million deaths in the U.S. (I don't know if that meant 10% of cases proved fatal, or if that meant 10% of Italy's population died. Either way it's staggering. According to this https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/italy/ the number is 5%, which is better, but still horrible.)

There is no "good" outcome for a pandemic, but I cannot say what's been done has truly been bad.

Tiana got her vaccine Monday. She feels fine. :thumbup:
She works at a nursing home where they got to gown up, and wear shields. In this , a town smaller than Lawton- which only has 1,800 residents.
And crazy Nazi's run out of the woodwork. They are in jail now for trying to kidnap and execute Gov.Whitmore!
It's insane NOT to think this is real. How many cases of beer do these people drink?
I will smoke pot and drink whiskey, but I pass out before I start screaming about weird 1950's FATE pulp
fiction garbage!

Another person I know came down with it.  :bluesad: She's on lockdown. She's young, I'm sure she'll be OK.  :thumbup:

Meanwhile another girl I know doesn't want to take the vaccine because she's listening to Alex Jones or something and thinks it will kill her.  :bluesad: At least she's not claiming it's a secret microchipping plan anymore.  She's one of those people who, unfortunately, is really too stupid to understand how viruses or vaccines work. I don't think I can right her ship.

I got dose #1 of the Moderna vaccine today.  Very glad indeed! 
In about 2 weeks I should have >90% protection.

in a city not too far from where I live an idiot intentionally destroyed a lot of COVD-vaccines

Kubrick, Nolan, Tarantino, Wan, Iñárritu, Scorsese, Chaplin, Abrams, Wes Anderson, Gilliam, Kurosawa - the elite



I believe in the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Rev i'm sorry to hear you have an idiot for a friend,  i get if you don't want to take the vaccine right away cause you want to see how people's reactions are to it that i get i haven't taken it yet myself. but why does anyone listen to Alex Jones?  that guy is almost as dumb as Trump is. last year he was on Joe Rogan and i don't Mind Rogan but some of his opinions on covid i do disagree with but anyways he had Alex Jones on once and i tried to watch it on you tube and after like 10 seconds i shut off cause i just could not stand to listen to him anymore.

man are people stupid folks, my folks went out to do errands   and they  just could not believe the bars being full the stores as well & it is amazing how stupid people are when if there are that many people out how in the hell can things get any better? even if you do take the vaccine you can still get it they've admitted that much, they didn't go in the bars but you can tell by how many cars there are no doubt how busy they were.

Please, everyone.

For a moment just hear me out if you doubt the vaccines.  Bear in mind that this is not a political issue to me -- it's my daily work to know what we know, and what we don't, about common questions in primary care (like vaccination efficacy and safety).

These vaccines are *safe*, and *have* been extensively tested.  No vaccine is totally safe, but the overall risk to benefit ratio is vastly in favor of the benefit.     People will buy lottery tickets and *not* take vaccines.   Such is the public understanding of risk and benefit.

Please -- *do* take the covid vaccine, as soon as you can, unless it's medically contraindicated.   Do not mess around with this, do not wait and see.   Take the vaccine and get yourself basically out of risk.
Do it soon as you can.  Do not let this be a political issue; the science of it isn't.

You talk about the vaccine like it's a cure. It is pushers like you that are making so many people distrust the rush job vaccine. I'll take my chances with the virus itself, thank you.
First rule is, 'The laws of Germany'
Second rule is, 'Be nice to mommy'
Third rule is, 'Don't talk to commies'
Fourth rule is, 'Eat kosher salamis'

No, its idiots armed with pseudo-science and a Twitter account who make people distrust vaccines.

My parents are getting vaccinated today, which will be a load off my mind (especially after they get the second dose). Apparently there were open spaces after some local health care workers declined to be innocculated (!) and they opened up vaccination for the doses to the general public on a first come, first served basis. My parents were able to get in. I decided to wait my turn.

And I still have people on FB yelling at me because I get mad when I see people out in public without masks.
